Verified profile
A Manchester based duo formed in 2010 playing covers of popular songs at weddings, functions, bars and restaurants in the North West

Laura-Jayne Hunter (Lead Vocals): Laura-Jayne trained in voice and performing arts at Manchester's Capitol Theatre before fronting indie-pop outfit Mia and covers band The Sun Band. Over the last few years she has been inundated with demand for her solo act 'Indie Lounge', comprising alternative chilled down versions of popular songs of all genres and is also lead vocalist with wedding and function band LeFunk! Her versatile vocals have led to many varied bookings throughout her career at venues including Band on the Wall, the Free Trade Hall and Manchester's Comedy Store (as a singer, not comedian!), along with countless function rooms at wedding venues up and down the country. Laura is also a vocal coach. Dave Carter (Guitar/Backing Vocals): Dave has been playing guitar since the 80s when he formed his first originals band as a teenager. He founded and performed with various function bands in Birmingham in the 80s onward, playing at major hotels and venues in the Midlands. He now performs in several formats, solo, with the function band LeFunk! and with the LeLounge Acoustic Duo. Dave is a versatile guitarist with a love of many genres. He has played in Jazz and Jazz Funk bands at Alexander’s Jazz Theatre, Cinnamon Club, Llangollen Pavilion Theatre and many Wedding and Party venues around the North West with function bands. He also teaches guitar and has the Grade 8 ABRSM classical guitar qualification.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

No we only perform as a duo, either fully live acoustic or with electric guitar and backing tracks. We can offer an add-on of solo acoustic classical/instrumenta guitar, and we do perform with the function band LeFunk! who have a separate profile on Encore. If you'd like both early evening duo then LeFunk later just let us know and we'll quote appropriately.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We always provide recorded music between our sets and we can quote for a full DJ service if you want to extend this to the end of the event. We can provide a bigger PA and Disco lighting as part of this additional service

How much time do you need to set up?

15 minutes

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes this is good fun!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Absolutely!

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, for a wedding this is included at no extra charge. For other events we may charge an additional fee of between £20 and £40

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The interesting meticulous arrangements of the songs we perform. So many acoustic musicians just strum along while reading a chord chart from an Ipad (you'll see this mounted on a stand in so many videos online!).

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Hundreds of Private Weddings/Parties (various Hotels/Venues) The Royal Air Force & Armed Services - on site Stockport Plaza Theatre Grosvenor Casinos Greater Manchester Police Stockport Council Llangollen Pavilion Theatre Tatton Park Various Nightclubs Bars & clubs in Manchester/Cheshire

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We can be influenced by anything from Wheatus to Irving Berlin! The duo has its routes as a spin off from two distinct sources though. Guitarist Dave played Jazz for several years before forming LeFunk, a Soul, Motown and Disco band. Laura-Jayne Hunter was previously singing with IndieLounge, performing chilled versions of classic Indie hits.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Main band (with LeFunk) for the run of Xmas Banquet nights at Llangollen Pavilion. Performing classical and acoustic guitar, then band at the wedding of a premier league footballer. Starring spot at the Blackthorne Festival (Laura-Jayne Hunter).

Just got back from honeymoon and just wanted to say a big thank you to all and let you know everyone at the wedding has commented on how fantastic you were. Will highly recommend you and if you want a review posting anywhere just let me know. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without you especially the duo during food. Excellent!!!!!

We have been so lucky to have Laura-Jayne every month as one of our featured artists. She has developed quite a following. Laura has a fabulous voice, is passionate about her music and has a personality that gets the audience eating out of her hand
